kid goat or suckling lamb

(Serves 4)


1/2 kid goat or suckling lamb cut into fairly even pieces

3 sprigs of rosemary

4 cloves of garlic

flour for dusting

salt and pepper

olive oil for frying

1 cup Pinot Grigio wine


Cut 1/2 of the animal up into pieces about equal size.  Coat the pieces with flour and shake off the excess.  Brown them really well on all sides in a good olive oil.  Do this in batches until the pieces are all browned.  Place them in a heavy roasting pan (a clay pot was traditional in our house).  Season well with salt and pepper.  Add the rosemary sprigs, chopped garlic and wine to the pan.  Roast for 2 hours in a 350 degree oven.  This is absolutely wonderful!
